Let me guide you in a scenario.

A hacker, who had managed to obtain the credential information of victim's email via social engineering (like phishing), enters the victim's mailbox. Then, he had found out that the victim had registered an account on the Internet Archive, but only to found out that he (or she) had deleted the account in question. Afterwards, the hacker went ahead by resurrecting the victim's account by aforementioned method, and managed to mess up with files that are associated with the victim's account.

So, if somebody want to resurrect his account, he should contact the webmaster in question. Period.
